Japanese billionaire prepares for December space mission

An upcoming space flight by a Japanese billionaire will give the public a closer look at life aboard the International Space Station, the president of Space Adventures, a company that organized the flight, said on Friday. Fashion mogul Yusaku Maezawa will take to space on December 8 aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft with producer Yozo Hirano, who will be filming his mission, and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin. Tom Shelley, president of Space Adventures, said Maezawa compiled a list of 100 things to do in space during a 12-day mission after asking the audience for ideas.
